'Pocatello' brings a distinctive, new voice to Mathers Theatre 

Eddie manages a chain restaurant, much like the Olive Garden. He wants it to be the kind of place that brings people together, but it doesn’t seem to work out that way—even for his own family. As the challenged waiters struggle to meet the demands for never-ending breadsticks, gluten-free pasta and emergency cleanup of all types, Eddie tries to connect with something real.

This brand-new, darkly comic play from Samuel D. Hunter, one of America’s most promising emerging writers, brings a distinctive, contemporary voice to Mathers Theatre. Showtimes are Oct. 30-31 and Nov. 2-3 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7, or $5 with student ID (visit the online box office).
